    but there is no fabric on the back of this not even on the edges
    Get some military patch books that describe types of embroidery... most types 'fully envelope' the base material -and you will not see the base material, front or back. Only when the embroidered patch is cut from the roll of the base material, will you see the color of the base material on the edges.

    Your patch is Korean War up to 1968 vintage. Gov't specs on how patches are made changed in 1968 to include a merrowed edge. For yours to be of WWII vintage, you would see khaki or OD base material at the edges... yours is black.

    Your patch, your photo... enlarged for detail:

    I can see your point now thanks. Looking at the edge of this one I can see the diff.

    Why return it?

    Depending on what you paid, it is still collectable and no longer made. It is just not WWII.

    I agree and I still like the look of it post war or not. At least it is not a Repro.
